Its green and above the ground! So great start mate, the hard part is done Smile lol

That soil look really dark and wet. Dont water her too much, its really easy to over water a cannabis plats in soil like that. And that will cause you problems. 

You want the top couple of inches of soil to dry out before you water her again, let the roots get some air. 

600w HID light or LED? It might be a bit much for a 80 cm space, but with good extraction you can handle it.

maybe you should add perlite to keep a bit of air in the soil - compost is anyway best natural ground.

@james very good idea for soil. I use a 50/50 perlite to soil mix and it allows the water to go through easier I think and also allows the plant to breath a bit better. A MUST for soil in my opinion. And @macky is absolutely right about the over watering. If your unsure and the plant is healthy it's best to wait a day until she seems thirsty. Very easy to overwater as you think your helping her but you end up drowning her. Looks good so far man!

Yer stop watering mate, at least 3 days, maybe even more. A great way to tell is by lifting the pot, if it feels heavy its all good, if it is light the plant needs water. 

Its a fine balance that take practise to find but you'll be alright mate. If you're unsure if you should water or not, just post a pic up and we can tell you.

Do you know if the light comes with a digital ballast or not?

@super-smudge Wow. I think 600W HPS it's for bigger tents. I have one 60x60x160 and have one 150W HPS and with the tent closed it gets a bit warm inside. Can imagine with 600W HPS. What's the difference of temperature with the lights on and off? And what type of ventilation and extraction do you have?

Found those sheets buddy I’ll forward you a pdf if this doesn’t print out for you. I found them very handy and so much easier to keep track of things, I’m a fucker for writing on a scrap of paper and saying I’ll write that down properly later, and I never do lol. The first grow is so exciting broda I hope it goes well for you. One piece of advice I give you is update your diary as much as possible, everyone will keep an eye on your baby’s and if we spot something we will let you know and the course of action to take, the boys are legends here

@macky Yeah definitely mate. Just think something like this would be really handy for me and other new growers to keep a log and by having this information recorded, will probably help you and the other more experienced guys in providing more beneficial help if we do encounter a problem along the road.

@super-smudge Looking good mate. If you want, you can already top the plant and start training it. That leaf on the right side is broken? And you should consider add some perlite to the soil. I added now to mine as well and are working very well.

If you use a fishing line you should put sth like thick paper between stem and line otherwise it will cut the stem

I use thin fibre as well but I tie it to the clips of bread and co.

looks lie the stem of the leaf was a little damaged and it stop some of the moisture getting to parts of the leaf mate thats all. This happens when there is a breakage some times. like the leaf is eating some of its self to make the repairs in needs to do. Looks like it be fine from now 

But it could also be fan burn too, do you have it sitting directly in the breeze of a fan, or intake vent?
